Heschel's Seder Night (in Hebrew)


6 בJune 2023    
20:00 - 21:30

Event Type

Script: Eran Shavit | Director: Yoni Eilat | Actor: Rodia Kozlovsky

A one-person show portraying the inspiring Jewish leader Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel.

Admission: NIS 50 for guests; 20 NIS for members; in cash at the door, only.

Time of occurrence: April 1968, a few days before the Seder Night.

The primary cause for Heschel’s agitation: His friend and ideological partner, Dr. Martin Luther King, is to be one of the Seder guests. The meticulous preparations charge the Jewish Freedom Holiday with universalistic overtones: the struggle for human rights, social activism, the need for “Tikkun Olam,” the relevance of tradition, Jewish nationhood, and Zionism.

The original production, marking the fiftieth anniversary of Avraham Yehoshua Heschel’s death, is an initiative of the World Zionist Organization.
